Muslim Country Warns Israeli Tourists Not To “Wear Jewish Dress”

Now that is what actual Apartheid looks like. Remind me when the Israeli government ever warned Muslim tourists not to wear Muslim clothes or pray in a public place. But this kind of assumed Apartheid goes unnoticed. Worse still it’s taking place in an “officially” moderate Muslim country where the tourism ministry is essentially warning visitors that being identified as Jewish will result in violence.
According to a copy of a ministry memo issued at the end of November, Amman instructed Jordanian tour operators to inform their Israeli counterparts to advise Israeli visitors not to wear “Jewish dress” or perform “religious rituals in public places” so as to prevent an unfriendly reaction by Jordanian citizens.
The Jordan Society of Tourism and Travel Agents forwarded on the imperative to Jordanian tour operators, one of whom forwarded a copy to The Times of Israel.’
Earlier this year, six Israeli tourists were assaulted in a market in southern Jordan after vendors were angered by their traditional Jewish skullcaps.
It’s not the skullcaps that they hate, it’s the Jews. Until a serious discussion about Muslim Anti-Semitism takes place, there can be no peace.
